CHICAGO – Washington Spirit midfielder Andi Sullivan has been added to the U.S. women’s national team roster for the two matches against South Korea Republic on the 2019 Victory Tour.
Sullivan was added due to several injuries and the overall work load of the 2019 Women’s World Cup team players as the National Women’s Soccer League season nears its conclusion. She has made 11 international appearances.
Sullivan, 23, had an excellent season with the Spirit, playing every minute of all 22 matches in which she appeared and scoring twice. The 2017 MAC Hermann Trophy winner at Stanford University after helping lead the Cardinal to the NCAA Division I title and top pick in the 2017 NWSL Draft, Sullivan earned her first senior team cap in 2016 after playing in World Cups at the Under-17 and U-20 levels for the USA.
The World Cup champions will finish up the tour when they take on Korea Republic on at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday (7:30 p.m. ET; FS1, the FOX Sports App and TUDN) and Sunday, Oct. 6 at Soldier Field in Chicago (1 p.m. CT on ESPN and the ESPN App).
